One Instagram influencer has recently had her first cookbook recalled by its publisher over concerns that the raw, foraged ingredients some of her recipes call for may prove “dangerous” for average readers.

On August 10, BuzzFeed News reported that Rodale Books issued a recall for “Tales from a Forager’s Kitchen” by Johnna Holmgren after critics argued that some recipes could prove “dangerous.” According to Amazon, the text was first published on May 15 of this year.

The article goes on to state the following:

For her part, Holmgren’s Instagram account @Foxmeetsbear boasts a following of 130,000, where the mom of three blogs about her life with her husband, a chalk artist, and their three young daughters.

According to Holmgren’s website, the family lives in an A-frame house in the woods with their various pets, and she can often be found “foraging in our woods, baking or cooking with the girls, gardening, learning about peaceful parenting or making some sort of magical mess.”

We are the only species born with an un-developed brain. We come in with that little soft spot, our skull is making room for the brain to grow those first three years. And how does the brain grow? Love. Everyone’s brain grows on love. You can literally see it now on scans that when people are well loved, their brain grows bigger and better and more connected, which totally makes sense because they’re in growth mode— not stress and protection mode. So from the way humans are designed, at the core, we are designed to love. If you didn’t get that love from the people who are supposed to love you the most, you walk about feeling, “Am I lovable? Am I lovable?” You’re not responsible for what happened to you, but you are responsible to yourself to try to move past it. To one day wake up and say, I deserve in this lifetime, to feel lovable. To be whole. When you realize you’re responsible for your own self esteem, it’s a very empowered place. That your thoughts are your own now. That you are worthy and enough just as you are. Flip the script in your brain. How do you love yourself in a way that it grows the muscle in your brain? Thoughts are medicine. So when you’re speaking gracefully to yourself, you’re actually changing your neurochemistry. Who you surround yourself with matters. There are three types of friends: The type that brings you down. The one’s who keep you stagnant. Then there’s a spiritual elevator up. As you become healthier, your vibe attracts your tribe. A healthy partnership is the best therapy. Being seen and loved, wholely for who you are. Someone who loves you at the height of your ugliesness and acting out, they see you as lovable. Not, “if you don’t behave, I’m going to slam the door.. or walk out.. or abandon.” This is the way to love a child. Not contingent upon performance or obedience, but with a beautiful unconditional love that they deserve and everybody deserves. -Dr. Robin Berman YES.

The Crown Publishing Group, parent company of Rodale Books, issued the following statement regarding the recall:

“Rodale Books and our author Johnna Holmgren take very seriously the concerns expressed by readers regarding the preparation and cooking of recipes with raw ingredients (mushrooms and elderberries) that are contained in her recently published TALES FROM A FORAGER’S KITCHEN,” the release states. “In light of our review of these concerns, and because of our dedication to wellness, Rodale Books and Johnna Holmgren have decided to discontinue the publication and promotion of the book.”

“We are encouraging retailers to return their stock, and we are offering a full refund to consumers who have purchased the book. We are all committed to publishing books that offer reliable and comprehensive guidance about their subjects and we regret the inconvenience to our booksellers and readers,” it concludes.

I am hosting a meal out here in the glasshouse again next weekend and could not be more excited to make a meal and create a space for others! It makes me so happy. The buzzing around before everyone gets here, the runs back inside for forgotten items, making sure everyone has enough of what they need and listening to other people’s hearts. You guys know I already get crazy sweaty when I do stuff like this, but once everyone gets settled and together— there’s nothing like that feeling of connecting and being with each other over a good meal and delicious dessert and wine. I like to see what others are drawn to, whether the salty dishes or sweet. Wish I could do this every weekend this summer. T minus 2 days until my cookbook is out! 🌙 I’m headed to bed currently feeling all the feelings! So excited!

Do you feel like foraging is too overwhelming? This week alone, we foraged wild ramps, clovers, plantain, lilacs, dandelion, violets, pine, stinging nettle, and morels are right around the corner. Foraging is absolutely so tangible and provokes such curiosity and learning and wonder for the girls and us both. Beginning all the way at the basics of a dandelion plant…it’s been around and torn up season after season, but when you look closer you see this absolutely beautiful species. Bright vibrant petals, crisp green leaves and a solid satiable root. All edible in different forms through each season and I can’t help but feel like it’s that very basic level idea of perspective. Shifting a perspective to look at the same thing, with a different light, can actually change what it is that we are seeing. Currently on my stove are three pots, one of which has dandelion syrup for a cocktail, one is for a dandelion jam and the other on the counter next to it is a simple rinsing of the leaves for a salad and roots for a tea. It’s incredible for the bones, filled with Vitamin K and A, cleanses the liver and bursting with antioxidants. Wondrous and curious and so full of discovery, offering nutrients to insects, butterflies and us! Ahh! Genuinely magical! Have you eaten or harvested dandelion? Would you try it? 🌼
